Project Description

Making Jam and Jelly is more of a science than a recipe, meaning you cant play to much with it.


  • 5-6 pints Country Magic Blackberries
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 pouches (170mL) Liquid Pectin
  • 7 1/2 cups superfine sugar
  • 1/2 tsp butter


  • Wash and thoroughly crush blackberries. Simmer 5 minutes, covered.
  • Pour prepared mixture into dampened jelly bagger cheese cloth-lined sieve suspended over a deep container.
  • Let juice drip undisturbed, at least 2 hours or overnight. For quicker results, squeeze bag; juice may be cloudy.
  • Measure 3 3/4 cups prepared juice into a large, deep stainless steel saucepan.
  • Stir in lemon juice and all the sugar. Add the butter to help reduce foaming.
  • Over high heat, bring mixture to a full roiling boil that cannot be stirred down.
  • Add liquid pectin. Boil hard 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and quickly skim off any foam that has formed on top of the jelly.
  • Place in hot sterilized jars and process in a water bath for 12 minutes.
